Former NFL running back Mark Walton doesn’t have a team at the moment, but he has one less problem to worry about.

According to, aggravated battery charges against Walton were dropped.

He was arrested last November for an alleged assault against his pregnant girlfriend. The Dolphins quickly released him. He had been arrested three times the previous offseason, leading the Bengals to release him after the third one.

It’s unlikely there will be a rush for an NFL team to acquire his services at the moment. In 21 career games, he has 67 carries for 235 yards.

  1. Love this guy’s running style and am a big believer in 2nd chances. Walton’s problem is he ran out of 2nd chances 4-5 2nd chances ago.

  2. In 21 career games, he has 67 carries for 235 yards.

    Being a marginal player and not having the ability to stay out of trouble usually means being a former marginal player. At least he has a degree from University of Miami to fall back on.
